Fairytale’s fate left to fans with flair βœοΈπŸ’«

Hey Poptropicans! This post comes to you with a few updates: an official contest, the return of a legend, and more fan art features. Let’s pop in!

First, the Pop Creators have announced a Fairytale Fanfic Challenge, calling Poptropicans to write an original ending for Fairytale Island.

Acknowledging that questions were left unanswered in the island’s ending, the Creators decided this little contest would be a fun way to open it up to us to decide what happens next for the characters we’ve come to know and love. Questions such as…

  • Where did Rumpelstiltskin disappear to? Will he ever return?
  • What does the prince’s fate hold? Will he have to get a job?!
  • What comes of the new happy endings for Red, Snow, and Cinder?
  • What friendship blossoms between Little Red Riding Hood and the Seven Dwarves?
  • Does Snow White open her veterinary practice?
  • Do the Huntsman and Cinderella fall in love? Hopefully the Huntsman’s left behind his homicidal hijinx…
  • And what did Rumplestiltskin do with the real king?

The Fairytale Fanfic Challenge is open from now until next Friday, May 21 at 8 pm PST. Send your rewritten ending as text or a file attachment to Poptropica’s submissions form for a chance to win some credits and be featured on the Creators’ Blog!

But also, what about that lackluster ending to Fairytale Island? While it’s exciting to get everyone’s creative juices flowing with these fanfiction writing prompts, fans also want to experience more complete narratives in the game itself, from the creators themselves.

The creators haven’t made any promises on changing the island’s ending in the game or adding an Episode 2, though some of the island’s dialogue hints at it. Could this be a compromise for wanting to add more but not having the time and resources to do it just yet? And is this what Perfect Crab, the Dream Island winner, envisioned for Fairytale Island? Whatever the case, at least we’ll be seeing some semi-canonical conclusions with the fanfic challenge…


While we’re talking Fairytale Island, a very special video playthrough dropped just this week. Some of you may recognize Thinknoodles, the popular gaming YouTuber who got his start years ago with Poptropica walkthroughs. Although he doesn’t play much Pop now, he dropped by with a “Road to Captain Thinknoodles” let’s-play for the OGs!

The vid starts with (a younger looking) Think playing through the new Home Island mini quest, but he soon makes his way to Fairytale Island, where he intensifies the jumpscare of the forest wolf, appreciates the “aged up” jokes, and even sings along to Cinder’s guitar riff. Enjoy!


Last but not least, here’s the latest round of fan art features from the creators’ Instagram stories, with OCs and villains galore:

That concludes this update! You’ve got about a week to come up with a better happily-(or sadly?)-ever-after for Fairytale Island and might win some credits for it. Plus, rack up some more by playing through the new Lost Cubs mini quest. 🐻 Keep on popping on, Poptropicans! ✌️
